I 1 ?.—Special dofrespofldence: Youf last ftumbef efttte duly to hand to out' friends at Ivetett, and I en* therein a line that • had started for the coast and had you a letter or two. It was in toe so to do, but as you have published it to the world and it ' Would not he exactly the " proper caper" to injure the reputation for truth bf so honorable men as the editors of " tfME UPPER DBS MolNES, I will drop you a few lines, which may perhaps be just as interesting to your readers as the patent ready-made articles which I &m told are sold to papers at so much a foot, ("prices made known to the trade on application.") Well, I got off in the usual way on Saturday, the 8th inst., and arrived safely in St. Paul on time. Time had changed on the "Soo Pacific" route, Over which we were going on our outward trip, and having met Mrs. S. at the depot we were obliged to spund the night at St. Paul and proceed on our journey early the next morning. We stopped at the Merchants' hotel, a fair second-class house at first-class prices, but paid our three dollars for a room "like little men," thereby helping the clerk to pay the next installment on his new diamond stud. I think it the duty of all as tbey pass along life's road to help the deserving as much as circumstances will permit. Starting early on Sunday morning we passed through Minnesota in a northwesterly direction to the junction with the Canadian Pacific at a point a little east of Moosejaw. This is a division point on the Canadian Pacific road, and the name is a contraction of the Indian name which reads literally: "The place where the man mended his cart with a moose jawbone." We entered the province of Alberta at daylight on Monday morning and found quite a heavy frost on the ground. There is one tangent on this road nearly eighty miles long, said to be the longest straight piece of railroad in the United States. Nothing is to be seen along the route passed over this day except the division stations and about each fifteen miles a section house. It is a fair criittmis officials, lid ifideed ait othefSOtt th& ll«e* a<P6 vef-y courteous and 6mig< !»f, Tbe trmlft service otf this' llfie is Sow hardly tip to the Great NottheWi ~"-* ftonheffl Paclfo, except IS the cars, which ate the saffieof UBBI i* s6 ib ail, and at-** vefy good; but the day coaches and first-class eleepfefs are of latei* patterns abd 1 think father fiber on the lasUimmed lines, abd the employes, taking pattefft afte? the Canadian, gfow more courteous aad obliging* so that n6W all the Canadian excels the others is in the matter of the scenery, which cati never be taken away fi'oin them and Will always be a drawing card lor one trip at least.

West of Moosejaw comes the usual Complement of division stations or towns with section houses at about the same distances as below. The face of the country is gently rolling, with occasionally a lake covered with alkali that looks like ice over the water, and I am told that in many instances it will bear up a person. We saw occasionally wolves, foxes, badgers, and a great many prairie dogs in places. Very little evidence of other animal life is seen. The principal division stations north of here are Swift Current and Medicine Hat, until Calgary is reached, which is a city of about 4,000 or 5,000 people, and from which a line runs north to Edmonton on the north branch of the Saskatchewan, over two hundred miles, I believe. From Calgary westward the scenery on the line commences, following for a hundred miles or so up the Bow river, which is a beautiful stream iringed with timber in places and a very rapid current. From here to the end of the Canadian Pacific line we are in the mountains all the way, and it is truthfully said, I think, that* no other route presents such grand combinations of mountain, glacier, river, lake, and valley as this .one. One should search the dictionary for adjectives and use them all in the superlative degree and often to do the subject justice. When one thinks as he goes over the passes in the Rockies and Selkirks that he is over a mile above the, sea level and then skirts the base of mountains that are solid masses of granite over a mile and a half above him, and whose tops are at all times white with, the eternal snows, and that at the Rogers pass in the Selkirks he stands near the loot of the great glacier that extends back over a dozen miles and is said to be larger than all the glaciers in Switzerland, with a front hundreds of feet bigfc, he is moved by thoughts that can not be expressed, It would seem as if one could spend a lifetime gazing at them without becoming satiated. I should judge that the summer had been warmer than usual in the mountains, for I do not think there was as much enow as I had before seen on them at ttyis season of the year, though the tops were entirely covered, and on our awivftl oa this side we have had floe views Of Baker, Glacier, and Old Taco- 'ma, the grandest of all, and all looming Irpw pne and a half to two miles above ' the tops of the other mountains in the - 4roade, range, and shining like silver - far. and away over and above all of tbetp. ; ' FOP eating laoilities on tbe Canadian Pacific there is a fine buffet oar from , gt, Paul to Moosejaw, dining oars from tbere to the mountains,, $nd fine hotels »| tie Kicking Bovse pass, the Glacier, ad lit JJQFtb Bend on the Frazert At ft tfcees places the grounds around are " t to ?^Py flR e order, and fountains r en the" keai^ful lawns and abund- tinae is given for aU meals, Ob' • 'are attached to all trains pn ' Mrs. Rusher—Has Mr. G-oldcoin, with •whomyouhavebeendancing alltheeven- ing, at last declared his intentions.MabeH Mabel—Yes, aunt.
